Genetics and "Genomics": The Ins and Outs of Testing for Patients with Gynecologic Cancer

January 20, 2022

The words genetics and “genomics” are sometimes used interchangeably, but what exactly do these two terms mean and how are they different?

This program will help unpack the confusion surrounding these very different forms of testing. Join Peggy Cottrell, MS, CGC, board certified genetic counselor at Sharsheret and Dr. Roisin O’Cearbhaill, Research Director of the Gynecologic Medical Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), as they explain the types of tests you may have had and what tests you should consider.

This program is presented by SHARE, with partnership support from Sharsheret.
